    @Varun would be great if the last used custom preset was also remembered by the file... I'm constantly toggling PNG transparency depending on the file I'm working on (icons vs screen designs for UI design)

    Perfect, look forward to seeing it in the product

    @Varun Sounds great! Can i just confirm:

    In you example below, if I open a second file and hit export, the export path shown will be the last used path for the second file, not the path for the first file?

    @Varun any way we can customise the default path? I always have a /exports folder alongside the illustrator file, it would be great if I could specify that exports folder (or any other folder), and have it remembered specifically for that file.

    When I go to export again for that file, it remembers that exports location.

    If I open a second file, it would remember the path for that second file.

    My issue was merged into this one, but they are not the same thing. My issue refers to the Export for Screens dialogue, not Assets Exports.

    Additionally, I don't think having custom presets is a very good solution for my problem. Each time I create a file it has a different export location, and tends to have different settings for PNG transparency and retina/non-retina. Having to create a new custom preset for every new file would be a hassle, and particularly so if the file does not remember the last preset it used. Would much rather just have the file remember all the export settings.

    Would also be very helpful if when in artboard mode, you could toggle export/not export and have that setting save with the file, rather than having to select this in the Export for Screen dialogue.

    I use Illustrator for a few different purposes: Icon design, screen mocks, wireframing. Using the Exports for Screens dialogue, for each of these tasks have different output formats:

    Icon design: PNG, 3x scale, transparent background
    Screen mocks: PNG, 1x scale, white background, some artboards omitted from the export

    Every time I switch from one task and file to another, I have to reenter these settings, which is very irritating as it can happen many times a day. It also reduces my confidence that I have enterred the correct settings.

    I also have different output locations for each file.

    The Export for Screens dialogue should remember the last used settings on a per-file basis, or allow me to save a custom settings set and associate that with a file.

    This would be a huge help!

    Saving export preferences with the file would be very useful!

    If there was a way to avoid the dialogue box entirely, and just overwrite any existing files that would be the best

    Yep this is very annoying, especially with larger shadows. The same issue occurs with glow effects. Have recorded this for clarity: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uxo4o5bp9ee55vb/ai-glow-select.mov?dl=0
